, i in some ways kind of ruin the good name of the marine corps, but i'll do my best to make it up. the first book, you know, i didn't mean to write it. i'm not a writer. that's not what i do full time. and the only reason that i wrote it was because, um, i really felt like i let my men down when i was at war because, it's hard to explain, but if you have a 19 or a 20-year-old and he charges a machine gun because he's worried that his buddies under fire are going to take more wounds and he runs at the thing thinking he's going to die but hopefully he can save them and he lives through it, the only thing you can do as his officer or as his leader reward him is give him a medal. you can't give him a vacation, a bonus, a to motion or pay raise. the only thing you can do is take a little bit of ribbon, a medal and pin it to his chest and say, hey, congratulations, marine, thank you for what you did. i didn't do enough of that so when i was leading my marines i got into business school, and i thought there's something i've got to make write. i can't go back and write 'em up for the awa

for joining us, admiral. (applause). from secretaries and generals to marin county search and rescue over there to nert members, it's a great mix of people and i think that integration is crucial because when we're preparing before during and after a disaster response, everyone in this room has a role to play in one way or another. and it's a great mix. and having been a former fire fighter this topic is important to me. when you think about one point, 1 million fire fighters around the country, they take 2 million calls a year or more to help people in times of need. 63,000 wild fires get beyond their initial attack capability every year, burning over 6.7 million acres. there are over 95 percent effective, they do a great job, but every so often you get that season or that issue that is going to escape or go beyond their ability to stop it right away and right now currently the u.s. forest service that helps provide a lot of air resources and seasonal fire fighters is at the point at the end of that season where every pay period they have to justify keeping those air aviation contract

. they further stated, marine corps commandant james jones, the tragedy is that these were all good marines joined in a challenging mission. unfortunately, the pilots drive to accomplish that mission appears to have been the fatal factor. mr. speaker, what the family and myself have been battling for since the year 2000 is that the experts have said that the pilots did not understand how it impacts the v-22. vortex marine state is understood in most helicopters, but the v-22 was new and they had not done any testing at all . and mr. speaker, i want to read the paragraph from connie gruber when she asked me to look into this. this was dated december 10 of 2002. with so many wrongs in the world we cannot make right, i ask that you proudfully consider an injustice that you can help make right. i realize you alone may not be able to amend the report, but you can certainly support my efforts to permanently remove this black mark from my husband's honorable military service record. military leaders continue to refuse to amend this report, but i am certain that there must be other means of making

panel that we have here. back in april of 1992, i was commanding the first marine division and we had been to the gulf war and we had a lot of parades and we were feeling pretty good about things and on 30 april, 1992, the results of the rodney king trial were announced. two days later, we found the first marine division deployed to compton and watts and one of the most horrific sights i'd ever seen. it was the largest riot in u.s. history. 3,000 people were injured, 60 people were killed, and we actually ended up at one point in time having to use live ammunition. but once we did, the bloods and the krips and the gangs there realized we were serious. the reason we got involved is because they learned none of the police departments within los angeles could talk to each other on their communications gear. they had a different piece of equipment in the los angeles county sheriff's department than the police department or the compton police or the watts police or whoever. we ended up, we were providing radios so they could talk to each other. and i said that that should never happ
